The HKBP NYC worships at GA every Sunday at 1:00 pm in the Sanctuary, and following the service meets in the social hall for refreshments. All are welcome to worship. Worship uses the liturgy of the Huria Kristen Batak Protestan of Indonesia, and uses Bahasa Indonesia, the national language of Indonesia, and also Bahasa Batak, the language of the Batak people.

Open Arms Preschool

is a school founded on the philosophy that play is a child's vehicle for learning. We view learning as a natural and ongoing process, occurring as we interact with our environment, and we view each child as an individual who develops and discovers in their own ways. Building meaningful relationships between teacher and child, and among other children, is central to the work we do.

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.


Healing Services

We offer brief healing services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. These are powerful times of anointing and prayer. They are held in the sanctuary after the 11 AM service.
